Of course if you want a good one it will cost A LOT more than a good guitar. Same with a cello. When I was accompanying string players in college, one of my friends bought a very nice violin for a mere....$25,000.

Of course, the piano I want is only $45,000.

Given only two choices, I'd go with guitar. It's hard to jam like the Edge with a cello.

But, I'd also throw in a vote for piano is given the opportunity.

Hmmm. Well, the piano isn't an option. I don't like it as much as I do stringed instruments. And as for brass, well, believe it or not, I don't have that much hot air. Hiphop, thanks for the well explained answer. I do think because I get frustrated easily when I try to learn new things and they don't come easily, the guitar would be a better choice.

I haven't decided yet, and I don't really have to until next fall. Hell, I don't ever have to decide if I don't want to!

Any other thoughts?

JEEEEZIS, that's a big-ass picture. I'm glad you decided to let it go. God knows what would've happened to us if you'd decided to not let it go.



: pouts: Now no one will look at my thread cos they don't want to wait for that stupid picture to load. :stampsfoot:

I piano too! I took lessons from when I was in 3rd grade till I was in 8th grade. I can still play a little, but I don't have a piano in my apartment (just a cheap keyboard that isn't even full length) so I've gotten kinda out of practice.

Brass doesn't require hot air... It requires a lot of buzzing with your lips, which for first-timers beginners get an itchy sensation after playing brass...

Tuba, on the other hand, it's not so much a buzz than a flubberring of lips.

Dunno why I know. I never played brass. I was a woodwind player in jr.hi

Headache, I shrunk your picture because it was ridiculously huge. I hope you don't mind.

As for what instrument to learn, I voted for guitar. My reason behind this is that I think guitar is an instrument that sounds great by itself whereas a cello would probably sound more interesting with accompaniment. Not that cello solos aren't beautiful, but I think it would be a lot more fulfilling to be able to play a song on guitar (with the added bonus of getting to sing along). It also depends on if you're interested in classical or popular music. If I were going to take the time to learn another instrument (I can play clarinet now), I'd definitely choose piano or guitar. But that's just me!
